90+!!!! All else is trash.
Well first of all I do believe there is a strong correlation between high scores and game quality. Second the higher the score the more likely people on the fence give it a try. I want it to be huge game supported for years. I am absolutely gonna buy day one unless it scores really poorly compared to previous games. That's highly unlikely.
Too many reviews in at this point to hit 90. 88 at best, 84 at worst. Awesome scores.Score keeps getting better since the last time I checked, at this rate it might get close to 90.
This thread is embarassing though, PS fanboys acting like idiots just because the game didn't crack 90 and XB fanboys feeling insecure trying to downplay PS exclusives and accusing critics of being biased.
Again, probably sounded smarter in your head.
Can't really review MP prelaunch. That's why you see reviews in progress and without scores. Those with scores, I got no explanation for them.
The characterization is good.
Your tracks in the snow/sand appear to be dynamic. The weather is fixed as far as I can tell.
Took me about 12.5 hours to complete campaign.Dont have time to read reviews or whole thread. How long is this game? Did they fucked up pacing of the ending in this one as well? I swear i expected like another 3 hour after last mission in gears 4, was really surprised when credits hit.
Also, are the open areas just big asss empty bud beatiful open worlds areas or are they rich on content? I cant really imagine exploring in gears like new gow or lets say mass effecr andromeda.
Where the story falls apart, and where Gears 5 has its biggest miss, is in the ending. A new “big bad” is introduced over the course of the game. A key character is eliminated from the story. And just as you think you’re building to a reckoning...the game ends. Much like Gears of War 2, it’s a sudden ending, and it has the same unfinished vibe as the end of “The Matrix Reloaded” or “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” In fact, the final, game ending boss fight is just a rehash of the Act III boss fight.
The ending of most act 2's out of 3 will generally feel this way, I'm not worried. I wasn't expecting everything to be sorted/answered.Your tracks in the snow/sand appear to be dynamic. The weather is fixed as far as I can tell.
Took me about 12.5 hours to complete campaign.
As for the ending...
You don't need to sort everything, but Act IV is the shortest act in the game, it has a reused boss, and no indication it is the final battle until it is over and the game ends.
